Niveus shares

Background of Niveus

  • Niveus Investments is an investment holding company which was incorporated in South Africa in 2012, with investments mainly in the alcoholic beverage and gaming/casino sectors. The group’s primary investments include KWV Holdings (in which it has a 57.13% stake), Galaxy Bingo (100%) and Vukani (100%). Other investments include Betcoza Online (17.6%), The Glen Restaurant (100%) and Red Stripe Trading (100%). The group is 52% owned by Hosken Consolidated Investments.

  • Niveus has a history of utilising a decentralised management structure to allow its underlying investment companies autonomy, enabling industry experts to manage daily operations with the support and guidance of the holding company. Some functions have been centralised where clear synergy benefits exist.

  • Today, Niveus shares are for sale on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) with a market cap of R4 billion. The group recorded revenue of R1.2 billion in the 2016 financial year. The live online stocks chart shows that Niveus share price has enjoyed healthy gains on the JSE.

Niveus Shares Growth Driver

  • Niveus aims to drive growth by growing and developing existing investments and pursuing investments with asymmetrical risk/reward profiles. In existing businesses, the company aims to unlock value by growing market share, improving margins and seeking operational efficiencies.

  • Niveus managed to increase EBITDA in 2016 from R319 million to R335 million, but overall the company had reduced profits of R56 million compared to R94 million. Whilst the gaming and entertainment segment enjoyed a strong performance to record a R33 million profit increase, the beverages segment suffered a R25 million decrease in profits, whilst other investments contributed a R76 million loss. Earnings losses were mainly due to a R45 million settlement fee paid to Johnnic Holdings and foreign exchange losses of R23 million incurred by KWV Holdings. The group’s muted results meant that dividends were cut by 17%.

  • Growth in the gaming division is outperforming the South African economy, but business is being impacted by lower profitability in in-house restaurants and site owners’ businesses. Legislative changes to the National Gambling Policy have been identified as a significant threat, containing provisions which are negative to the bingo industry. The depreciation of the rand has also had a negative effect due to most equipment being imported.

  • In May 2016, the group announced that it will dispose of the operating assets of KWV for a consideration of R1.15 billion. Vasari Global has agreed to buy the assets.
